Ethical Downsizing Strategies: Do the Most Good

September 3, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

As boomers reach retirement, millennials embrace minimalism, and retailers spit out an ever-increasing barrage of product, those getting ready to downsize face a harsh reality: stuff isn’t worth much, demand is weak, and estate liquidators have become strategic about which clients they accept, leaving many seniors – and their families – to deal with decades of emotionally charged accumulation on their own.

Our objective is to help empty nesters know what to expect and how to plan for a major life transition in order to have the most positive experience and most successful outcomes possible.

During this ‘tell it to me straight’ info session, we’ll explain the current market for secondhand goods, discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that present for this particular age group and explain what is likely to happen at each phase of the downsizing process.

You’ll leave the event with a clear understanding of the stages involved, solutions for each stage, and a list of resources, contacts, and strategies intended to help you keep as many of your treasures out of the trash as possible.

If you’d like to host this programming for your community, customer base, or private event, please contact us to learn more and/or schedule.
